♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I love this book. It's such a good romance. If ever someone is asking me what book to read or if they are new to romance I always offer up this book.
Brodick is a great leading man, and presents many sigh worthy moments. Gillian is a wonderful, strong woman who is a perfect match for Brodick. I even love the secondary characters Ramsey and Bridgid. They add to many of the laugh out loud moments.
The narrator Susan Duerden did a wonderful job. I enjoyed her voices and enthusiasm during the story. She gets right into the roles and makes it a very enjoyable experience.
This is a definite keeper and reread/relisten for me. It still stands as a book I measure others against.
For fans of Scottish medieval romances comes this beloved and classic page-turner from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.
In the dark days after the death of Richard the Lionhearted, lives and lands would fall into upheaval at the hands of a power-hungry British ruler and his violent minions. One victim of the scourge is innocent Gillian, who is a mere child when the cruel and ambitious Baron Alford slaughters her father and tears her family apart. Alford, determined to recover a jewelled box for the despotic King John, is furious when the precious treasure slips through his fingers—only to be lost for more than a decade.
Now a beautiful young woman, Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclair and Brodick Buchanan. With the cunning and courage of the daring Scotsmen, and with the friendship of a new ally, Bridgid KirkConnell, Gillian at last fights the unscrupulous Baron Alford, laying claim to her home, her family, and her father's reputation. But in the presence of the mighty warriors, Gillian and Bridgid discover that desire can be a weapon of conquest, betrayal can slay trust in a heartbeat, and the greatest risk of all is to surrender to unexpected love.
